Real Books....well not really.

Can you believe these are paintings?? I was blown away by artist/painter Victoria Reichelt. I first came across her work via Inside Out Magazine's blog. Since I appeared in their May/June issue, I decided to check out their blog today. Glad I did! Victoria is from Australia & studied at the Queensland College of Art. The collection below is from an exhibition called Bibliomania: The Bookshelf Portrait Project. You can see more of Victoria's life-like paintings via her site.

  10. Really nice. I would like to see her take on more challenging titles=)
    I wonder if she does commissions? They would be wonderful portraits of the book owners.
